Introducing the Peace Finance Standard and Certification Scheme
The Peace Finance Standard and Certification scheme has been established as the global benchmark for labeling Peace Bonds and Peace Equity instruments. The pioneering standard outlines the essential criteria that Bond or Equity issuers must meet to initiate and manage the certification of a Peace Bond or Peace Equity instrument. As a best practice, the Standard serves as a guide to labeling Peace Bonds and Peace Equity instruments effectively.
What does this mean for you as an issuer? Our Standard outlines the essential criteria needed to meet to kick-start and manage the certification of your Peace Bond or Peace Equity instrument. This process ensures that your investments not only yield financial returns but also contribute positively to global peace efforts.
